Strobilopterus proteus. Interpretive drawings. A: Holotype, FMNH PE 28961. Scale bar = 50 mm. B: FMNH PE 61197. C: FMNH PE 61166. Scale bars = 10 mm. Specimens are colour-coded, with light grey representing the carapace, red the prosomal appendages, orange the metastoma, blue the mesosoma, green the metasoma, and dark grey the telson. The Blattfüsse are demarcated by a lighter blue, while the first opisthosomal tergite (that of somite VIII) is light purple. The genital appendage is brown, and the spatula dark purple. Dashed lines represent unnatural edges of cuticle preservation, with solid lines delineating the outline of the animal. Thick lines indicated breaks in the matrix. Abbreviations for the labels are as follows: AF, articulating facet; Bl, Blattfüsse; Ca, carapace; DP, deltoid plate; Ea, ear on coxa VI; Ep, epimera; Ep7, enlarged epimeron of opisthosomal segment 7; GA, genital appendage; Ge, carapace genal spine; Gn, gnathobase; Ki?, Kiemenplatten?; Me, metastoma; MOP, median opercular plate; POP, posterior opercular plate; Se, serrations; Sp, spatula; Te, telson; VP, prosomal ventral plates; II–VI, prosomal appendages II–VI; VI-7a, appendage VI podomere 7a; VI-9, appendage VI podomere 9; 1–12, opisthosomal segments 1–12.
